Because I don't have any more vacation days left until July . . .

It seems that rivka's picked up on my secret plan to trick a Hatracker into picking me up and driving me to meet other jatraqueros!
As the kidnapper, I plan on making the kidnappee pay for the gas.

On the topic of lurking, I certainly do it now, though I'm not a dedicated lurker. And by that I mean that while I check in at least every couple of days (which used to mean a lot of catching up to do... not as much now), I also do post occasionally, thus ruining my lurker status.

I go through spurts where I think "I'll get back in to Hatrack or Sake!" and I pop in and have a good time for a bit, but it never lasts. And I'm ok with that. Both certainly played a huge role in my life and I would be sad if they ever went away or I completely severed ties. But lurking on the fringe has its merits I suppose.

ETA: 2005... dang, I'd forgotten it had been that long. I suppose maybe I've lurked longer than I'd thought.

I was there too! You were wearing a Inigo Montoya shirt.

Haven't even logged since last July... but I still do lurk. Posting has become even less frequent, though - 28 posts in 2010, 11 posts last year, and just 1 so far this year.

I posted a lot in my first two years...but then life got crazy busy. I drop by and check things out, but work and marriage have a tendency to take up a lot of time. [Smile]

It has been interesting seeing all the names I remember from back when I was a regular years ago. I almost became real back then when a bunch of central Florida people planned to meet up in Gainesville back in 04 or 05, but then a hurricane caused the meetup to be canceled and we never rescheduled.

The last remnant of the Terry Goodkind board was just shut down this month after over 15 years of activity. First it had lost its "official" status and the financial backing of terry when his publisher had him hire a "real" firm to handle the site (revel studios). They then wrecked the site and closed the board. The original webmaster kept an unofficial page going for a while, but it got to be to expensive. It is sad to see a a site die like that. I hope OSC keeps this board running even if activity wanes. It is a bit of history after all.

Many of us expect the upcoming Ender's Game movie to lead to an temporary increase in activity here, so we'll see what happens. [Smile]

I've only posted a few times (we'll soon see how many). I lurked for at least a few months before I wrote a response to a discussion on religion (started by King of Men, I believe). I was welcomed kindly by rivka and others, and posted a few more times. I shared a bit about going to a booksigning in Greensboro in 2008.

I've enjoyed reading much of the discussion that goes on here over the past few years, and I have no good reason for not posting since I check the site often. Hello again!

I might have been there, too! I vaguely remember it. I went to many Hatrack get togethers back in the day. Good times! I remember I was so nervous for my first one (the one where Brinestone and Jon Boy met!) that I brought a roommate for support/protection. Scary internet people! [Wink]

Also, rivka, you are so good at remembering everyone and making us all feel welcomed and appreciated! [Smile]

I've got pictures of meeting Dr. Strangelove, and it looks like it was me and Brinestone, Porter and Beverly, Sarcasticmuppet, and Pooka. You must be thinking of some other get-together, hansenj. There certainly were a lot back in the day.

Paying it forward. [Smile] I got lots of welcomes when I joined, and when I've been away and returned.

I may in the Orlando area next February. Some friends want to get together to go see the Harry Potter thing.

But it really makes more sense that you all come to me. I'm right in the middle of everything! Nebraska is smack dab in the middle of the country. Ish.

It's really too bad that we didn't hang out when you were living in Detroit. Dayton and Detroit really aren't all that far away from each other.

We really should do something in Florida. Preferably after July when I'll be back in the state. But I've been there for... ever, but never met any of the Florida hatrackers.

I'll be back in Detroit for the summer if you want to try to set something up!

That's a part of the state I'm not that familiar with, unfortunately. I'm originally from Kansas, and I've spent a good bit of time in the Missouri side of Kansas City.

We used to have a fair number of Jatraqueros in Kansas and Missouri both, but I think we're down to you and Dan_Raven in Missouri and TStorm in Kansas at this point. It's entirely possible that I'm just unaware of the fact that people live in that region, though.

I have family who live in Leavenworth, so I'm moderately familiar with the Kansas City area. A friend and I drove up to Lawrence for a concert last summer also.

Lawrence is a great town for live music; it's pretty impressive, the calibur of the acts the city's able to attract (and at least in the 80s and 90s the local music scene was pretty vibrant too. I imagine that it still is).

I grew up in the country just outside of Lawrence, but think of myself as being from there.

Are you familiar with Basehor, by any chance? It's a little town about 15 miles south of Leavenworth.
